In year 1 we are teaching the children to be independent learners by following an enquiry base learning approach, we begin with a topic and discuss what the children already know. The children then come up with questions to find out what they would like to learn about that topic. They are then grouped based on the subject they are most interested in:
This term our topic is 'Our Local Community'.
Each week the children will be taught to research and investigate answers
to their own questions. We will also be going on some short, local walks to find out more about the community.
Just a couple of reminders:
*P.E. is on Monday and Thursday afternoons, so please make sure you
have your kit with you, don't forget something warm for outdoor P.E.
*Remember your book bags everyday, so we can make sure that you
are reading with an adult in school as well as at home.
Let's see how many "leaves" we can collect!
